Anyone that has been following me for all of 2 seconds knows that I love and adore Jack & Frankie. Mari did an absolutely amazing job & I can’t really put it into words how much I love this. If y’all have the opportunity, snatch up a commission slot (I know I’ll be doing another🤪) from her because she’s is so talented, so accommodating (also extremely fast!) & just overall so lovely. Check under the cut for the hilarious reference pic I sent her that inspired this whole thing😂
imagine having to wake up at 6 every single day starting tomorrow😭
DEEPLY Unpopular Opinion:
The gods and spirits are important to work with but you guys simp *too hard* for them and I think it makes them worse tbh.
They are *beings* that DO learn, grow, change and develop, just in different ways than us. Stop telling them they can't fuck up bc they're perfect- they can and do fuck up, and then learn from it (but not if we lie to them). They can also learn from actual praise, that is based on true good works amongst us!
They are so powerful that our time and work with them is of course important and changes us - but it is beneficial (or otherwise) for them *as well*. They learn what humans want. They learn what goodness really is (ie no Hera they were cried and upset that you killed the baby to get it away from abusive parents. Next time please inspire a neighboor to call the police instead) what hurts us, what moves us forward.
If it is constant worship, telling them they're perfect so you can have what you want, saying they aren't important bc you have part of some of their DNA so really it's all just holy and beautiful and they don't need to do personal growth work, that they're too far removed from us to understand, well then that's not going to help or change anything.
The stories are CLEAR: they can and do do wrong, they can and do feel guilt sorrow embarrassment and shame, they can and do learn from us and of better ways to work with us. Hence epithets.
I just think as we further awaken I see too many: It is all one, it is all purpose, nothing is real, all is invincible and endless, blah blah. Lovely. This wasn't the purpose of the awakening. Quit telling your friends they are the embodiment of perfection bc you only see them in dreams when they're shiny - they also only see us in a shining world of sun and flowers they cannot fully access without us. Stay polite and don't get mean or abusive yourself. But the weird "This Means All Is Perfection and those who don't know aren't fully awake" is bullshit. If you don't understand everyone on the other side is not infallible or beholden to us because we're related, or that PART OF THE PURPOSE is to help them see things through our eyes and help them grow as well, through us, then idk what to tell you. If you think their misdeeds are precious and you're a new shaman bc meditating is going really well for you, but you can't balls up to tell your pals (or your You if you can't grow past the intial Together/Oneness explanation yet bc it's correct but just initiation not the whole damn point) that their ideas sometimes cause more harm than good then you aren't On yet.
("It is okay we killed that baby on purpose bc it was a murderer in a past life and had the same soul!" It's not "oh okay great job". Tell them oh no, then them about social programs and that we need more, explain known brain chemistry, upbringing tools, that had we been able to surround his family and he with a *neverending* support system we could've made a difference and we need them to help make BROAD CHANGES! We are woken up now, after decades of sudden rapid research, science, discovery, and the installment of public education, for a REASON. It's not to clap at what they do like they're perfect because We'Re AlL oNe. In that case buddy I'm part of you and I'm telling you sucking otherworldly dick because you think it's your own instead of teaching what we've learned works for us when we're humans running an earth society (which you may notice if they left you in your physical form again this morning, you are tasked with doing). That wasn't even anyone's goal when patching DNA into us, it was for large scale changes to be made. Teach them about what you know about society (even when they say they already know - they fib sometimes to save face like any being!) And then ask for those things for EVERYONE!
no coffee was a terrible idea, so while i try and sort myself out, since it’s sunday, i am just thinking about the sound of bucky’s genuine laughter :’)
me finally sitting down to write the two fic requests i got back in november and now i can't find the requests and i'm going to scream
Place your bets: Will Maxx finish xyr headcanon essay or will xe get distracted again?
me rn shipping two characters that probably didn’t interact that much and one of them have an obvious canon love interest
ANYWAY this came from getting the Magical Mask Parmi and Harumi Izumi stickers in the collection. The resemblance to Chuko is incredibly uncanny and the fact that this character is in the same series that Tattsun is obsessed with?
i also thought Tattsun, after transforming into Ranger Black, continually kept calling Chuko “Ugly” was so odd. like yes, his entire character is flipped after his transformation, but he’d never really had big/serious interactions with Chuko prior so why did it come up now?
Tattsun says he likes “the pink ranger”, but its probably more like he’s projecting on the Red Ranger when he really wants to be like the Black Ranger
and yes, Chuko likes Kansai, but we’ve also seen one sided crushes from the club (ala Mowchan to Nyoro) so it wouldnt be unheard of for Tattsun to have a crush on Chuko but never voice it because its obvious that Chuko likes Kansai, who is the exact opposite of Tattsun
ALSO Tattsun is the Dragon and Kansai is the Tiger and there’s been a long running rivalry in Chinese mythology, so... he also calls Kansai an idiot while in Black Ranger form, which, sounds like he has some grudge since he didn’t say anything about Reycho
but anyway, im just... imagining them in their teen years, where tattsun continues to harbor a one sided crush and never does anything about it because chuko is probably maybe still dating kansai who knows. and tattsun thinks their fighting all the time probably isn’t healthy even though thats just how those two interact.
